British Mayor Barred from Piranha Rental Over 3D Health Issues

first_imgKeith Sharp is the 55-year-old mayor of a city in eastern England. He’s been a health adviser for the past decade and a half. He’s spent $3,000 on a 3D HD TV and $175 on 3D glasses. All the guy wanted to do was rent a copy of Piranha 3D and spend a quiet, bloodsplattered night at home.An employee at the local Blockbuster video thought otherwise, telling Sharp that he couldn’t rent the film. The ailing movie rental chain has a policy against renting out 3D, offer hygiene concerns. Apparently the policy was misinterpreted by an employee, who thought it extended to 3D films (why the store would carry a bunch of movies it couldn’t rent is beyond us, of course), barring Sharp from going home with the comedy-horror flick.“It’s absolutely stupid,” Sharp said, apparently distraught by the whole run in. “It’s one of those over-the-top health and safety issues I’m sick and tired of. Things like renting a DVD should be common sense. I’ve come across idiotic health and safety people in my time, and this is up there with the worst of them.”Blockbuster apologized for the apparent mix up, telling the press, “Staff have been trained on our strategy-but unfortunately, in this case, they provided the wrong information to the customer.”last_img read more
